John Legend "Rolling In The Deep" (Kenton Dunson Remix) Feat. Kenton Dunson

With the new blog schedule I set for myself, I rarely post things on Wednesday. But I came across this joint from Kenton Dunson, which is a remix to the cover of Adele's "Rolling In The Deep" and so I felt the need to post today. Let me just put something out there right quick, folks shouldn't get into the habit of doing covers of any of Adele's music and think that shit is gonna fly over here because it's not. I think Adele has a powerful voice and her tracks are better left untouched in terms of covers. I hope we're clear on that. Ha! However, this Adele cover is the joint that John Legend laid down some smooth vocals to on the acappella version of "Rolling In The Deep", so it's cool with me.

Adele, since her first album, has kind of become a Hip-Hop songstress by default with much of vocals being sampled *cough Hometown Glory*. What Kenton Dunson did here was take the John Legend version of "Rolling In The Deep" and add to it. Kenton writes, "when I heard John released this acappella of an awesome song by a great artist, I took that acappella and went to my piano, kick drum and bottle of whiskey...this happened."

I think Kenton did a great job adding layers and two pretty cool verses to this joint. Hit up the comment section with your thoughts. In the meantime, enjoy. Chea!
